Students living in the Grandview Heights area of South Surrey are one step closer to having a new elementary school in their neighbourhood.
Officials held a ground-breaking ceremony Feb. 7 at the Edgewood Drive-area site, near 23 Avenue and 166 Street.
The $33-million school will have space for 655 students and is scheduled to open in September 2021.
Surrey Board of Education chairperson Laurie Larsen said she is pleased to see school construction "on a roll" in Surrey.
"Besides the Edgewood Drive area elementary, work is under way on the 12-classroom addition at neighbouring Pacific Heights Elementary, as well as the 605-seat Maddaugh Road Elementary school in Clayton Heights. We also expect construction to start this spring on two more South Surrey schools."
